$45 for this?

My sis-in-law and her hubby are very pro-organic, eat free range food, food grown locally, you get the idea. They visited yesterday and brought an organic ham from a specialty shop. It was brown and wrinkly and didn't look or taste like ham. The only way it resembled ham was the cloves they used to stud it. It tasted ok but was gamey. It was a 10-pound ham and it cost $45!
I know organic stuff costs more but I had no idea! They told me how much money they spend on food and I about plozted. I'm so glad I don't believe in that organic crapola. Bring on the chemicals and give me the pink ham with FLAVOR!

Just as with "regular" food, I've found some organic to be inferior and some to be satisfactory, while still others are superior. However, the organics I've had tend to be superior much more often than not. I pay more but I get a better taste along with the fact it's healthier.

Brown and wrinkly ham? On the inside, too? Or just on the outside?
I bought a nice big Food City ham for last christmas, unwrapped it to bake and SLIME started sliding off the thing. I took it back, talked to the meat manager, and he replaced it with another. Got it home, same thing. Got my money back, went to Wal-marts. Yummy. But organic is best, when I can afford it.....

Organic is too expensive for me. I usually buy whatever is on sale.

This spring I am looking into planting fruits and veggies in the garden.

I always plant tomatoes, peppers (HOT ones) and cucumbers. That's about all the room I have for stuff.....

Organic HAM??? Just go purchase a piglet, feed it yourself, when it gets to a good size, slaughter it, dress it and there you go! You just 'saved' money for a ham! Of course, you probably needed to spend a large amount on feed and such, plus the permit to grow livestock, and the bribe money to the neighbors complaining about the stench, but it will be worth it, right?

Organic ham? Gross. My sister bought a bag of organic potatoe chips and when she opened the bag..it smelled like stinky feet..........

Yuck..none for me thanks! The bag ended up in the garbage uneaten..oofdah!!

Is organic food just a fad and do you have to acquire a taste for it sort of like eating those flat dry thingies that look like smooshed popcorn? What the heck is tofu?

Sorry but I'd rather enjoy a nice healthy salad and a pizza now and then..and then walk off the calories rather than eat organic tastlesness.

I always wondered about tofu too. What IS is?

All I know is Soylent Green is PEOPLE!!!! AHHHHH!!!
